Instructions
  1. Boil potatoes along with skin in a pressure cooker for 1 whistle. Let pressure drop naturally, peel off the skin and chop them into cubes.
  2. In cast iron pan, heat oil and add all ingredients under tempering (except curry leaves). As mustard seeds splutter and urad dal turns golden, add curry leaves.
  3. Meanwhile, make a smooth paste of raw onions and dried red chillies.
  4. Add this paste to the pan and fry on low flame for 5-6 mins. Cook off the onion paste until the raw smell is gone.
  5. Next add cubed potatoes. Stir fry for a couple of minutes and add salt as needed along with turmeric powder. Keep frying on a low flame for 4-5 mins.
  6. Add gram flour/besan and mix well. Roast on low flame for another 10-12 mins until potatoes cubes are crispy on the edges.
  7. Finally add chopped coriander leaves and remove from heat.
  8. Serve hot with rice, sambar or rasam or curd as side dish.
